Sean Taylor

It's hard to think about Sean Taylor's child growing up without a father. ESPN says he has a one year old daughter. Will she remember her dad? We can pray that the girl's mother, as well as Taylor's extended family, can be there for her as she grows up.

There has been far too much speculation about a connection between Sean Taylor's previous violent acts, and this violent act inflicted upon him. Jesus did tell Peter "He who lives by the sword dies by the sword." But Jesus didn't live by the sword, and he met with a violent death, as did Peter, who certainly must have taken Jesus' words about nonviolence to heart. Taylor is the victim of violence--that is the overriding reality.

Peace to Sean Taylor, and to all his family and friends.


  1. Michael Wilbon's article says it all.

    "Jesus didn't live by the sword, and he met with a violent death"

    Never thought about it like that.

    So how are we supposed to die not by the sword? Please don't let "rooting for the Packers" be involved.
